Book Review: Windwalker

From the award-winning author of Season of the Witch, comes a highly original story of murder, redemption, eternal love and destiny. WINDWALKER will keep you on the edge of your seat. And break your heart.

When photographer, Justine Callaway, walks into the deserted English mansion, Paradine Park, she doesn’t suspect that she is opening the door to the greatest mystery–and magic–of her life.

Justine becomes obsessed by the family who used to live in the house, especially the oldest son, Adam Buchanan. But why is she so drawn to a man who had killed his brother nine years before? And why, as she photographs the house, does she discover ghostly images she knows she did not record?

Even more unsettling, she senses someone is stalking her, watching her...

It has been a while since I have written up a review and I am sorry.  My reading seems to have slowed down lately due to headaches and other health issues.  That and the fact that when I am laying down it is so much easier to listen to a book then read it.  And then I stumble upon a book like WINDWALKER.

This is a book that I am both glad that I took the time to sit down and read, and one that I am very sorry that it is over.  It's not often that I book will bring me to tears but this one succeeded.  So be warned, have those tissues at ready when you are getting near the end.

Like all of the books I have read by Ms. Mostert, WINDWALKER has a very eerie overtone to it.  It delves into the world of the supernatural with soul mates and spirit or ghost photography.  It also bring up reincarnation with one lover searching for the other throughout all of their lives.

The characterization was first class.  I felt that I really grew to know Justine who was wounded and not able to recognize her own strengths.  The Watcher was enough to send chills down my spine.  And Adam, another wounded warrior and a fit mate for Justine. 

This is a book that I recommend to any of my readers who enjoy that touch of the 'other'.  To any who are looking for a love story that spans time and space.  I am just sorry that it took so long for me to dive into.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
